Vaccine Equity

Last updated 4/22/2021

Contra Costa Health Services is committed to a fair and equitable distribution of vaccines, particularly in communities disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. Below are some ways in which we are working to ensure equity in our vaccination efforts.

 

Locating Vaccination Sites in Areas Hardest Hit by COVID-19

CCHS operates 11 stationary vaccination sites across the county, including in communities most impacted by COVID-19: Antioch, Bay Point, Concord, Pittsburg, Richmond and San Pablo.

 

Mobile Vaccination Teams

We have several mobile teams hosting pop-up vaccination clinics with community partners, as well as bringing vaccines to homeless encampments. Our mobile teams have already immunized residents and staff at hundreds of nursing homes, board-and-care homes, and more than 70 low-income senior housing sites across the county. Homebound people that are unable to visit one of our sites can also request a home vaccination from our mobile team.

 

Outreach

We are building relationships with community-based organizations like United Latino Voices, NAACP, One Accord and Hijas del Campo to better reach and educate people in historically marginalized communities about the importance of vaccination.

 

Call Center

Not everyone is able to schedule vaccination appointments online. That’s why we launched a vaccine-appointment call center for people to be able to make appointments over the phone. Call 833-829-2626 from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. on weekends to make a vaccine appointment.
